I never blogged our first family vacation… and must remember to do so at some point. Mostly I would like to forget it ever happened. Well, not completely. It was not all bad but it did not go as planned. The quick review would be. Leavenworth, cute and hot. Ava LOVED the hotel room, fell in the pool sinking to the bottom, and then refused to actually sleep wanting only her bed at home. Our two night get away ended after one night when we left at 11pm with a screaming over tired toddler, arriving at home about 1am.
Family vacation two… MUCH, MUCH better!
“I want to go back on the plane to Colorado. Colorado is really fun.” ~Ava
This trip was not without a bump but pretty perfect otherwise. We headed to Colorado to attend a wedding. Here is where I could tell a long story of the airline losing our bag. Us planning an extended and expensive trip to the mall and target only to have it show up in time for my mom to deliver it to the hotel. I will however keep that bump as a blurb! A girl I used to nanny for and close family friend was getting married. So excited I got to attend. Plus with my parents attending we had baby sitters to actually have an adult night out with Uncle Todd and Auntie Kate!
The wedding was beautiful. Jen and her new hubby Ben seem so very happy! The girls had a blast. They dominated the dance floor all night and loved every minute of it! Ava even found her first boyfriend, Otto. They were instantly joined together. Dancing, running, jumping and running off together all night. He would even spin and twirl her on the dance floor it was so amazingly cute!!!
Sunday we had a blast all day with Uncle Todd and Auntie Kate. They were so gracious to host and entertain us and my parents. First up a family brunch at Kate’s hotel, The Four Seasons. YUM. A little shopping and stroll down my favorite little Denver street followed by naptime. Here is where I have to say a two bedroom suite was a vacation saver and luxury, the kids really slept great! We headed to Todd and Kate’s for a BBQ later that afternoon. The girls loved their baby, ashie (a dog) and we all ate and drank well.
Overall a fabulous trip. And in Ava’s words we will have to go back to Colorado soon!
I did not bring my camera:-( So a couple of iphone snaps and lots of memories will have to do!
